I've driven lots of cars. I've wallowed like a Russian oligarch pig in the gorgeous mud of a $1.6-million Bugatti Veyron. I've spit tailpipe fire across the midnight Mojave at the wheel of a Lamborghini. I've brushed gape-mouthed peasants aside with the chrome cowcatcher grille of a Rolls Royce Phantom. Yet I have never driven a car half as advanced, as futuristic, as blind-with-science as the Honda FCX Clarity hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle. Nor one so expensive. More on that in a moment.

The only Mercedes hatchback on the U.S. market, the 2011 B-Class F-Cell, wouldn't be recognizable as a Benz if it weren't for its premium badge. Its small, pragmatic silhouette is more Japanese than German. But the B-Class F-Cell is more notable for what's under the hood than its profile. The four-door subcompact is a hydrogen-powered electric vehicle that can travel more than 200 miles between fill-ups and doesn't need an outlet to recharge. The first Mercedes-Benz fuel-cell vehicle to be offered to the public, the B-Class F-Cell is available in one U.S. market: Los Angeles.

Oscar-winning writer and director Paul Haggis owns four Toyota Priuses and is high on the waiting list to buy a $100,000 Tesla electric roadster. But when he heard about the new Honda FCX Clarity, a hydrogen-powered car that gets 270 miles on a tank and emits nothing but water, he was desperate to drive it. "I want one. I want one," he said of the Clarity, later dispatching his agent to hunt for the not-yet-available vehicle.

California consumers counting on a $5,000 state rebate for purchasing an electric car may be in for a shock: The money may not be there when they go to collect. The state Air Resources Board, which is offering the program for eligible electric and other zero-emission vehicles, has $8 million in its coffers. That's enough to pay out incentives to about 1,600 buyers, estimated Jay Friedland, legislative director of Plug In America, an electric-vehicle advocacy group. But it's well below the expected pace of sales for vehicles such as the Nissan Leaf, which is just now hitting the market.

At every auto show there are certain vehicles that generate a buzz (and a crowd). Many factors — newness, rarity, performance, looks, lavish features, revolutionary technology — can make a car a crowd puller. But at this year’s L.A. Auto Show, being sexy and green seems to be as important as being fast and expensive. We looked at a few of the models that have necks craning and cameras flashing at the L.A. Convention Center. BMW CONCEPT 6 SERIES COUPE This svelte four-seater is attracting an audience at the show because, though billed as a concept, it’s widely rumored to resemble the production third-generation 6 Series due in mid-2011 — and in this status-obsessed city, we all want to see what’ll be in our neighbors’ driveways next year.
